Our Lady of Mercy School Supply Drive
Our annual school supply drive for our sharing parish, Our Lady of Mercy, will take place on the weekends of August 17/18 & 24/25.
Our Lady of Mercy Parish, located in the Albany Park neighborhood, has a very large and active Religious Education Program, instructing and forming close to 600 children. The program has 65 active catechists. This year OLM has requested support for needy high school students as well. Saint Clement parishioners have a tradition of generously supporting the program by providing school supplies to families who are experiencing financial hardship. The staff and families of OLM have always expressed heartfelt appreciation for our support.
